Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Cindy Chupack (SEX AND THE CITY) is writing DISH, which is essentially SATC in L.A. with fewer women, for ABC. (I dunno about this one cuz let’s face it, L.A. is just intrinsically less interesting, people-wise, than NY. Especially to yer once and forever munchman, who grew up right near Venice Beach, which seems to be DISH’s home turf. Well, actually I grew up in Thousand Oaks, but that’s close, yes? No?)
  • Annabel Oaks (AWKWARD) has sold IN SECURITY, a comedy that’s essentially CHARLIE’S ANGELS but half as long and, mehopes, twice as self-aware, to NBC. (Which, come to think about it, isn’t exactly aware of much these days so…I dunno about this. Unless it’s going to be a 21st Century GET SMART with hot babes, in which case I just might make myself watch, of course am dead against it cuz…my girlfriend is standing right behind me as I type.)
  • Melissa Rauch & Winston Rauch (THE BIG BANG THEORY) are writing IF WE’RE NOT MARRIED BY 30, a pilot for CBS, the network known all over the world for not understanding one single thing about human beings under 50, let alone 30. (So it’s pass-a-may-mucho on this one, even if it is co-written by THE BIG BANG THEORY co-star Melissa Rauch, who just may be the real reason I tune in that silly little show religiously every now and then.)
  • Allyn Rachel & Patrick Carlyle (web series COUPLE TIME) have sold CRESCENT HEIGHTS, a comedy about, um, the L.A. street Crescent Heights, to Fox. (Hey, they’re peer producers! With a hit web series! Tell munchy everything you need him – me – to do and I’m on it cuz once upon a time I prophecized that the web would be TV’s new breeding grounds and, dammit, we gotta make it happen!)

That’s it for now. Write in and tell munchilito what you’ve sold today. TVWriter™ can’t wait to brag to all your friends. (And, more importantly, enemies. Hehehe….)
